At the Asia Coat and Ink Show 2015 held in Mumbai from 2 to 4 March 2015, the trading firm ABC Chemicals promoted its wide array pigments, resins, resin raw materials, packaging raw materials, additives, plasticizers and surfactants. Apart from India, the company has offices in China, USA, Egypt, Thailand and UAE.

“The company represents the best suppliers, carefully selected for quality, consistency, financial stability and environmental impact of their operations,” said Azmat Khan, business manager at ABC Chemicals. The company has exclusive sales agreements with principals such as the Flint Group, Hanwha and AkzoNoble located in India, Thailand, Korea, UK, Belgium, Germany and China.

For the flexible packaging industry, the company offers all kinds of raw material under one roof. “We provide all kinds of flexible packaging raw material to the converting, printing and packaging industries and would like to operate as a single window source for all raw materials for packaging converters,” Khan said. Some of the products for the flexible packing industry are polyster film, BOPP film, CPP film, aluminium foils, PE coated paper, solvents and zipper tapes. ABC Chemicals deals in all kinds of organic and inorganic pigments, pigment chips and carbon black used for all kinds of news inks as well as flexo and gravure inks.

The company’s portfolio for resins consists of aliphatic hydrocarbon resin for printing inks and adhesives, thylene-vinyl acetate co-polymer resin for printing inks and coatings, industrial nitrocellulose for printing inks, lacquers and polyurethane. Talking about the show, Khan said that the Asia Coat and Ink Show is an important event for the industry providing a platform for a variety of players in the industry to interact. “We have many important customers in India and the event gave us a chance to meet up with them. Also, we got a chance to interact with some potential customers,” Khan said adding that the response seen at the 2015 edition has been really good with many footfalls.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
